2013 CSA membership - is now open!
After a most memorable 2012 season, we are pleased to begin our preparations for the next one. Thanks to all of you who have signed up and shown your support for local sustainable farming. It is thanks to you that local sustainable farms are still an option, and not a historical memory.
Shares for the 2013 season are available and we invite you to join us.
As always, our shares are provided on a first come first served basis, and we fill our membership every year; so, for those of you who are interested, we hope you will sign up as early as possible.
As always, we will introduce several new varieties of vegetables this season , and continue to plant many other varieties that have been favorites of our members in the past seasons.
With the help of Mother Nature, we will provide our members with great produce this upcoming season. We look forward to sharing our farm and the produce it provides with you during the 2013 season.

What our members say….I subscribe to Green Earth Farm each year because I love the fresh produce, but it's much more than that. There is a sense of community in connecting to Scott and Kathy and their family, along with the other subscribers. I look forward to picking up the weekly box of produce, for the food, yes, but also for the chance to catch up with my friends. And knowing where my food comes from, feeling that connection to a specific plot of land, and lessening my demands on the earth, are very satisfying. -Greg Green Earth Farm is a wonderful CSA to be a part of. I have been a member for going on 3 years now and I love it!! The farmers are great people who truly love what they do and it shows in the vegetables they provide. Their farm is SO family friendly as they allow me and my son to stay as long as we like and pick raspberries off the bushes (more make it into our bellies than the baskets!!), feed the goats and horses and say hello to their resident pig, "Charlotte". Green Earth Farm has it all...awesome veggies, herbs and fruit and friendly farmers that know you by name. What could be better?!? -Meredith I am returning to this CSA for the fourth year because I love the vegetables and the fact that they are organically grown. The boxes are generously filled and it is a blast to go each week to find out what fresh ingredients I will be cooking with for the next several days. I have never gotten something too ripe and so I never have to use something before I'm ready. If you don't know what to do with something, the farmers are happy to share preparation tips and recipes with you. It is great to be able to talk to the people who raise your food! -Kim We are so excited to be back for the 2012 season. The boys are very excited to come to the farm again. You and Scott make the whole CSA experience so enjoyable for our entire family. Our boys have learned so much from coming out to the farm each week. We are truly grateful for all you do. -Laura
A little bit about us...
Welcome to Green Earth Farm. We're a 10 acre farm a few miles south of the Wisconsin border, in Richmond, Illinois. Several years ago we were fortunate to buy a farm from a local farmer who valued the nutrient-rich soil, and in the 40 years he farmed this land, never sprayed his fields. We inherited the added bonus of his years of raising cattle and dairy cows, who left their legacy with wonderfully natural fertilizer that still enriches our land. So with that headstart, what better to do with our farm than to grow natural, organically grown produce?
Green Earth Farm began as a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). But with a huge rustic barn that no longer housed cows, we decided to convert a small part of it into a pet boarding facility; embracing the farm philosophy that "everything earns its keep."
In our CSA, our goal is to provide healthy, delicious, naturally grown produce, poultry and eggs. We want to reintroduce the community to the joy of buying food from local farmers, where they can see and taste the freshness, while being active in promoting the sustainability of our planet.
In our kennel, our goal is to provide your beloved four legged family members a safe, quiet, "home away from home". When your pets are our guest, they will be given individual attention, lots of love and play time in a farm fresh environment. To meet this goal we chose to have a small kennel, with only 6 individual and private runs that we could manage together as a family without having to hire strangers to care for your pets.
Now that we've introduced ourselves, we invite you to take a closer look at what Green Earth Farm has offer...
Our heritage turkeys, chickens, geese and ducks roam free around the farm all day, naturally foraging the land.
This produces healthier and more nutritious birds and eggs.
On our 10 acre farm, we produce over 100 varieties of vegetables, herbs and fruits. They are grown organically, using sustainable farming practices.
We hand select our seeds from heirloom varieties that have been passed down through the generations. These are the varieties that your grandparents grew long ago.
Pure water flowing from artesian springs on our farm gives a healthy addition to our produce and forms our beautiful natural creek. our grounds have never been exposed to any pesticides or other chemicals and therefore are extremely rich and naturally organically healthy.back to top
